Very Bunny
3 December 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I was never too interested in the character of Rocky, he always seemed too one-dimensional and monotone. Of course this is intentional but I could never excited when a Rocky and Bugs cartoon came on. He was however great in Daffy's Golden Yeggs.

This time around Bugs is taking it easy in the city as Rabbit Season (DUCK SEASON!) is kicking off in the country. He hails a taxi to go for a cruise but ends up in the backseat of Rocky's getaway car.

Seconds later, Rocky has robbed a bank and is using Bugs as a hostage. Bugs a hostage? Puh-lease! He's got more wits and cunning in his baby finger than both Rocky and Mugsy together.

Very clever hijinks follow with a very funny ending.
